New Fundraising Events at Old Hickory Golf Club a Wonderful Success!


Last weekend, Winter Opera St. Louis hosted two new fundraising events at Old Hickory Golf Club – Sunday evening we enjoyed a wonderful four-course Italian dinner by guest chef Dominic Galati from Dominic’s Restaurants and Old Hickory chef Matt Howard followed by a lovely array of Broadway Favorites sung by soprano, Gina Galati and tenor Clark Sturdevant.

In attendance were a wonderful mix of familiar and new faces to Winter Opera St. Louis. All proceeds will go toward our upcoming season beginning in November.

We were back at Old Hickory Golf Club Monday afternoon for our first ever Golf Tournament! 13 teams participated in our scramble style tournament. With threats of rain in the forecast all week, we were thrilled that Mother Nature cooperated with cloud coverage most of the day but no precipitation! Lunch was provided by Old Hickory and Dominic’s Restaurant with plenty of hotdogs, burgers, salsiccia sandwiches, and beer to go around.


Congratulations to our First, Second, and Third place winners!

1st Place: Dr. Bill Droege, Rich Sauget, Tim Van Gelter, and Don Droege 

2nd Place: Gary Hill, David Guempel, Terry Loehrer, and Paula Loehrer

3rd Place: Kurt Jacob, Kevin Simmons, Keith Wortman, and Jim Schloeman



Thank you, everyone who attended our events last weekend! To our old friends: Your continued support means so much to us, and helps us ensure world class performances year after year! To our new friends: We are so excited to share the joys of opera with you, and look forward to seeing you again soon!



A special thanks to all our event sponsors!
